Hello Alex,

Perhaps this was a discussion I missed but it was my understanding that

a) we are creating a new requirements document

b) this document refers back to original requirement v1 document as
well as a 'report card' of how well those requirements were fulfilled
by v1.0 (the doc which now contains use cases and examples)

If you are proposing to publish the 'report card' as a Note, I think
that is a good thing though that still doesn't mean we avoid a
requirements v2 doc   which will need to refer to requirements v1 and
non normative 'report card'.

I dont think I am misunderstanding you, but I guess I may not be
aware/see adminstratita,

J
